A celebration of good neighbors and good food

Mama Provi lives on the first floor of a tall apartment building. Her granddaughter, Lucy, lives on the eighth floor. But Lucy can't come to visit -- she has the chicken pox. Mama Provi knows just what will cheer Lucy up: a yummy pot of arroz con pollo (chicken with rice).

As Mama Provi climbs the stairs to Lucy's door, she meets several neighbors, each with something delicious to trade for a bowl of her rice. By the time she reaches the eighth floor, Mama Provi's pot of rice has become a multicultural feast, complete with all the fixings, and apple pie for dessert.
